Docks

4 posts in this topic

I have had both. Roll-a-Dock is almost a one person job (24 ft with L). That is what we currently have -- however, if you fish from your dock, don't get aluminum deck. It is impossible to sneak out to the end of the dock without making too much noise. On the other hand, they are no maintenance.

I have sorry memories of the old wooden beasts in 8 foot sections. This meant driving posts and setting set screws. Much too much work for a guy my age.

Good Day all- Am looking to buy a dock for our lake property. Have heard plusses and minus for the roll-in type vs. non roll-in. Any suggestions on this and anyone out there know of any place that sells used docks as well.

I agree with Clayton! In the resort business I had the pleasure of putting in and taking out docks that required assembly as well as the roll-in type. With the roll-in dock, you have gravity on your side to put it in and you can use a vehicle to pull it out. They are also MUCH easier to adjust when the lake leves rises and falls. You will happy that you spent the extra cash for a roll-in.

Glen, There is a place that sells some nice looking docks at Waterville Mn. He is located on highway 60. I know 3 people that have bought these docks so far and are very happy with them. They have wheels and you just roll them out. I'm lucky my husband built ours himself saved us hundreds of $$$.
We have a seasonal camper in that area and in the spring and fall they all get together and put the docks in and take them out in the fall. It only takes them a couple hours to put in and take out a lot of docks that way and then we have a pot luck afterwards.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
